Science in the National Curriculum concerns living things, materials and their properties and physical processes such as sound and light. Our science topics are planned to cover these three areas. This scientific knowledge is taught through investigative processes during which the children learn to plan investigations, obtain evidence and consider their results.
Skills such as observing, questioning, predicting, measuring, recording, evaluating and communicating their findings (orally, graphically and in writing) are all developed as children move through the school. We also make good use of our school grounds and local environment, to enhance our pupils' experiences.
